The Overview: The Karate Kid

The Overview: The Karate Kid

Overthinking It provides an alternative commentary for watching The Karate Kid.

This month’s Overview comes to you from beautiful Reseda, California, a locale we have discussed in detail on the podcast. You ask why, Daniel-san? It’s because we are discussing the 1980s classic, a seminal film about martial arts, coming of age, and waxing both on and off…

The Karate Kid

It’s not like we haven’t spent a lot of time overthinking The Karate Kid already, but certain extremely well-made films reward repeated viewings, and the presence of the movie on Netflix Instant Streaming sealed the deal for us.

Assume your crane stance and download The Overview today!

The Overview is a series of alternative commentary tracks from Overthinking It, where the Overthinkers watch and discuss your favorite movies for your edutainment. The commentary is meant to be played while watching the movie, which means you’ll need your own copy of the movie and a way to both watch and listen to a MP3 track in order to take full advantage of what you’re buying.

    Spoiler alert: it’s actually about the Vietnam War.

    I’m not even kidding. Download and find out why!

    As my Overview downloads and I prepare Netflix, participants should NOT make the mistake of clicking on the awful Karate Kid cartoon that I found on the streaming. You’ve been warned.

    So that healing hand thing – my dad can actually do that using a sort of hypnosis, and he’s not even Asian at all! Apparently it works, but nobody knows why – and it doesn’t “cure” anything, just temporarily ameliorate pains.

    I tried syncing this with Ghostbusters 2….and….It WORKS!

    (No, Not really)

    Once I can get my act together, I’ll be getting these, and giving them a go. I’m considering getting a viewing party for Twilight, as I have a couple of friends who have enjoyed it. Rather, enjoyed their viewing of it, rather than it itself.
